The Stallions who finished 13-11 overall, and 7-3 in Conference competition last season in the 1A Uwharrie Conference will be playing in the newly created 1A PAC 7 Conference this upcoming season.  The new conference will consist of QGHS, Community School of Davidson, Mountain Island Charter, Pine Lake Prep, Union Academy, Carolina International and Bradford Prep.  Fifth year Head Coach Jay Forsythe (64-38 record) is expecting his team to be very competitive and should be a top tier team in the PAC 7. The Stallions are athletic, quick, can rebound, will press and play teams tough defensively.

Returning Starters: Junior Jah’Quez Sanders, 6’3″ PG., Junior Xavier Westbrook, 6’3″ F., Senior Khalil Chapman 6’5″ G/F., Sophomore Jeremiah Murphy 6’5″ G/F.

Key Newcomers: Senior A.J. Gallagher 6″6″ F/C., Senior Prince Lemon 5’10” PG., Sophomore Loren “LB” Boyette 6’4″ G.

Additional remarks from Coach Forsythe: The Stallions are athletic, good defensively and coach fully expects his team to rebound and score consistently.  Jah’Quez Sanders plays both ends of the floor, has great vision, a nice “floater” and shoots with range.  A.J Gallagher a big kid 220 pounds with a college ready body.  He can bang down low or step out with range, tenacious rebounder and shot blocker.  Prince Lemon is speedy with good vision and ability to hit the pull up.  Khalil Chapman has a knack of always doing something good on the floor, solid left handed 3 point shooter.  Jeremiah Murphy, kid can jump out of the gym who is starting to find himself, he has skills of a wing, but can play Forward.  LB Boyette is a great shooter with deep 3 point range.  Xavier Westbrook is strong, a hard worker who understands his skill sets and uses them to make the team better.

The Stallions men’s varsity basketball season will open up with an away non-conference game at Covenant Day (Matthews, NC) on Tuesday November 21st at 7:30 pm.
